The simple way to create and monitor a Ruby daemon.
Works by generating a bash file and executing it instead of doing any Ruby process tricks.
sudo gem install with_pid
#!/usr/bin/env ruby require 'rubygems' require 'with_pid' with_pid( :action => ARGV, # start or stop :command => "/data/my_app/current/script/runner 'Delayed::Worker.new.start'", :name => "dj", :pid => "/var/run/dj/dj.pid", :tmp => "/data/my_app/current/tmp", :user => "deploy" )
Be sure to run
chmod +x /data/my_app/current/bin/dj.
It is up to you to make sure that the command you execute runs in a continuous loop.
check process delayed_job with pidfile /var/run/dj/dj.pid start program = "/data/my_app/current/bin/dj start" stop program = "/data/my_app/current/bin/dj stop" group delayed_job
